Bulfinch, Stephen Greenleaf, a Unitarian minister, was born in Boston June 18, 1809. His father, Charles Bulfinch, a well-known architect, was the designer of the national capitol at Washington, where he lived and where his son Stephen was graduated at Columbian College in 1827. He was also a graduate of the Theological School at Cambridge, Mass., 1830. He was ordained in 1831, and began his ministry at Augusta, Ga. Later he was the pastor of Unitarian Churches in several places. Dr. Bulfinch died at East Cambridge, Mass., October 12, 1870. The Boston Transcript just after his decease said: |Of a beautiful spirit, earnest convictions, sympathetic and devout nature, he won the respect and love of the people wherever he served.| Most of his poems are found in his Lays of the Gospel, Boston, 1845.
